    Ford 57\" bushings?

    Stephen, do you carry bushings for the 57" Ford's? If not i guess I will order another set of the 52's and cut them down again. Thanks.

    I called yesterday for the same thing and they said all they need is the spring eye id and they would have them. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Are all the aftermarket suppliers the same? What brand are you using?
    It shouldn't be a big deal to get the right parts, we just need to know what to get!

    I told whoever I talked too that I would have to wait until the springs got to me cause I just bought them from another member. Instead of guessing which springs I might be getting of the 57" ford springs wether they be stock or aftermarket. I will call when I get them and give the id of the spring eyes.

    what kinda price do you have on a bushing kit (4 total)to fit the Fords. With or without greasable?

    I can get the proper OD of them tomorrow.

    Typically a pair of spring eyes runs $25.00 to make greasable, so both ends of the springs would be $50.00.
    Non-grease runs about $13.00 for a pair of eyes.
    This is assuming these aren't something really odd which I really doubt will happen.

    So I'm looking at getting 4 bushings (8 halfs) 4 sleeves and 4 bolts for:
    grease: $50
    non grease $26

    the weird part is this set of fords have different eyes them my other set. :shrug: same length and width and flex when side by side. ??? either way... I'm using em LMAO


    -Jeremy
